Have you ever been to Alaska? If so, which parts? If not, would you like to? I have not but I would like to - it looks so beautiful.

  • i lived in Anchorage for 2 years and 2 summer/winters while in college (early 2000s). it was okay. its a very beautiful state, but i would never ever want to live there again. visit, sure! but not to live. winter is miserable there, we'd go to school in the dark and come home in the dark, 4-6 ft of snow was the norm from Nov to March. and i love snow haha. but the summer is nice...we use to go hiking until 2 am b/c the sun was still up haha. i never got to go very far north, but i visited a lot of places south of Anchorage and Valdez.

    so yeah its a beautiful place to vacation/visit, but not so great to live there (when you're from somewhere else).

  • I want to go! DH has relatives that live there now, some that have moved away from there (work related or they'd have stayed), and some that are moving there this spring. Someday, I will get there!

  • Yes! A friend of mine is stationed up there and posts pics all the time. Her backyard is literally vast snow capped mountains, a creek and trees and endless wilderness. She has literally seen a midnight sun. It's amazing

  • I have never been but would definitely love to go! Two of my friends live there and its so neat to see the pictures they post on FB. Snow covered mountains and moose! My husband wishes he could get stationed there and I'd be all for it!
